Steven Wright on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” in May 2021
By Sharon Aron Baron
Steven Wright hailed as “a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow,” is bringing his hilarious, award-winning comedy to the Center on Saturday, October 23.
A stand-out talk show stand-up from Johnny Carson and Dave Letterman to Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, and Seth Meyers, Steven Wright has been cracking up audiences for nearly 40 years with his deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical nonsensical jokes, nonsequiturs, and one-liners.
His comedy career includes the Grammy-nominated albums I Have a Pony and I Still Have a Pony and the popular A Steven Wright Special and Wicker Chairs and Gravity, both on HBO.
In 1989, he received an Academy Award for Best Short Film for The Appointments of Dennis Jennings and has co-starred in such hit movies as Desperately Seeking Susan, Mike Meyers’ So I Married an Axe Murderer, Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers, Nora Ephron’s Mixed Nuts, Albert Brooks’ The Muse, Dave Chappelle’s Half-Baked, and the Jim Jarmusch film Coffee and Cigarettes.
In addition, Wright was a featured voice in such diverse flicks as Reservoir Dogs, Babe 2, and The Emoji Movie.
In 2008, Wright was the first inductee into The Boston Comedy Hall of Fame, and in 2013 he received the prestigious The Johnny Carson Comedy Legend Award.
